Must-listen: Maggie Rogers' new song 'Want Want'.

Maggie Rogers has today shared a new song, 'Want Want' - the second single from her upcoming sophomore album, 'Surrender', out on July 29th.

 Aboput her new song, Rogers says: “‘Want Want’ started in Maine during the pandemic in a small studio assembled over my parents’ garage. I wrote and produced it with my old bandmate, Del Water Gap. It was really just about the fun of it all. Some bubblegum world to escape to in the middle of the isolation and darkness. The song found its final form over the next year and a half, editing and re-editing with Kid Harpoon until we found the perfect knock-your-teeth-out drums, the right growl of the guitar tone. That roaring synth, it’s just a Prophet stock sound, but it always reminded me a little bit of the intro to “Iron Man” by Black Sabbath. The right amount of bite that still invites you in. The video is about sensuality. About embodiment. About freedom. It was shot in in one of my favorite karaoke bars. Sticky floors and fluorescent lit bathrooms. Everything in its right place.”

Watch the 'Want Want' music video below, which was filmed at a karaoke bar in NYC’s Koreatown and directed by Warren Fu...
